BEST HIP-HOP VIDEO
Who Should Win: “Heartbeat” by Childish Gambino; directed by Kyle Newacheck
The multifaceted Childish Gambino, or Donald Glover, shows off his smart rhymes in a simple video as we take a backseat to his heartbreak. Maybe the VMAs aren’t ready for the comedian and actor to snag a Moon Man, but we hope so.

Who Will Win: “Paris” by Watch The Throne; directed by Kanye West
Apparently, they conquered the city of lights and showed it in their video for “Paris,” equipped with a warning for seizure-inducing visuals. Normally, we wouldn’t think a music video filmed a live show would take the award. However, with Kanye’s interesting take and the song’s overall popularity, we’re awaiting The Throne to win.
